Duladeo Temple


What :

Duladeo Temple is one of the 25 Hindu temples in the World Heritage city of Khajuraho, India.

Originally part of a much larger temple city containing an estimated 85 distinct structures dedicated to various gods in the Hindu pantheon, Duladeo is dedicated to the god Shiva.

The last of the temples created by the Chandela Rajputs who ruled here millennia ago, Duladeo is the largest and most ornately decorated of the many temples in the area. The last of the structures to be completed before the Chandela dynasty fell from power.

While all the temples here are known for their decorative sculptures depicting varied sex acts, the great detail in the faces of the carvings at Duladeo sets it apart from the other structures as the paramount work of Chandela artistry.

When :

July and August monsoon rains offer travelers on tour in India a respite for the central Indian heat, easy booking, and smaller crowds.

The high season for tourism in the area runs between October and March as most guests on luxury tours of India avoid the high summer temperatures.

Where :

Duladeo is in the Southern Group of Khajuraho's many World Heritage Site temples. Located just south of the city, the area is best accessed via private vehicle.

Khajuraho city is in the central Indian state of Madhya Pradesh, and is well connected to the rest of the country via India's modern highway system, and easily accessed by private car.

Who :

One of 22 temples in the area's World Heritage Site, Duladeo is chance for culture, art, and history lovers to experience the long vanished Chandela dynasty's unique view of the world on their luxury tours of India.

Appropriate Attire :

The temples are sacred ground for practitioners of the Hindu and Jain religions, and travelers should dress modestly with covered shoulders, arms, and legs as a sign of respect.

John and I will always remember our trip. Before we went I had not the least bit of understanding about India. Now I feel that I have a foundation that will allow me to continue to learn and think about this complex and important place. We are grateful for the care and attention that went into the arrangements at each stop along the way. The kindness and patience of your employees and the local guides and drivers as we explored and asked innumerable questions was much appreciated. We were impressed with the knowledge and insight of our guides, especially the guides in Agra, in Udaipur and in Orcha. They were superb. Our driver in Khajuraho and Orcha was extremely thoughtful and reassuring. I am certain that you are aware that our driver through Rajasthan is a treasure. He is extraordinarily skillful and very fine company. Our travel facilitators were very helpful, especially in Agra and in Delhi. Our hotels were comfortable.
We are glad that we found Easy Tours and are grateful for your guidance in planning our itinerary as well as for making the arrangements that made this memorable experience possible. REFERENCE AVAILABLE.  INDEPENDENT TRAVEL

My entire family truly enjoyed our trip to India and Easy Tour definitely made it amazing. We really appreciated the fact that everything was on time and very efficiently organized. We enjoyed all the sites! We definitely would recommend Easy Tour to anyone looking to travel on a private tour in India and if we travel there again, we will use Easy Tour again. Oh and we must have had the best driver in India for the portion of Delhi to Udaipor. He was just amazing! All our guides were excellent except for the one in Jodhpur. All the other guides always very enthusiastic. REFERENCE AVAILABLE.  INDEPENDENT TRAVEL
